From Singapore To Selkirk..

Dearest Mae,
Thank you for being such a lovely customer. :)

....You have made my day...


Another massive Thank you for writing the best ever feedback on my Etsy shop..

5 out of 5 stars




This is probably the most difficult review I have ever had to write on Etsy. Do I say that this pouch is unique? No, that would be an utter understatement. Do I say that this pouch is quirky? No, this pouch is beyond quirky. So, I will just say it as it is. One afternoon, I came across this pouch while browsing Etsy. And I thought, "I need this pouch in my life." Into the shopping cart it went, and into my mailbox it arrived; in less than a week - across the world - from Selkirk to Singapore. I didn't even need a pouch in the first place. But just looking at it makes my day. Every day. Even on the crappiest day. This pouch is handmade with magic. 100 Stars. ありがとう、Sharon dearest ♡

Sewing Nook Shelving.

My Ercol dresser top was being used above my sewing machine for storage.
These sideboard tops are made for plates so they are quite narrow...
It really wasnt very useful at all...


I bought some shelves..
What a difference, so much more space...

A Humble Kitchen

My wee space...
Its so nice having all my wall sockets redone...
 I have a lovely aroma of pumkin spice circulating too...
Aw I love my wee humble home...






Brushed Steel Switched Sockets.

My Kitchen sockets were looking really tired..
Even after cleaning they looked tatty..
They were also yellowing with age.


I really like the copper switched sockets..
After looking at prices and debating whether copper was a keeper..
I decided on a cheaper more neutral metal..
The brushed steel..

Work Desk for my crafts.

I was using an old Bureau for my craft desk..
This Desk from Ikea gives me so much more space.
Its all so organised, I love it...
I stand when I craft so I got adjustable legs
My desk stands at 83cm high, meaning I dont get a sore back :)...

D.I.Y Wall panels

Its been a few year now since I made these wall panels and mouldings...
Its all had a new coat of paint,  ready for my new work desk...
A wee link to the original panels..




Bookmarks.


Todays sewing,
 Luxurious literary gift for book lovers...


Keyring, bag charms.

While I was playing around with the clay yesterday I also made these keyrings.. 
They took hours and hours between coats of decoupage and top coats...


Heres a range I have in my shop made with reinforced eco vinyl.

Small kitchen space

An odd angle....


Repurposed Drawer

In an earlier blog I had repurposed an old singer sewing drawer.
I had talked about the other repurposed drawers I was using..
Thought I would post up a pic of the one in the Kitchen..
I Love this drawer with its curvy front..
It used to belong to a half moon console table.
It now houses my lovely Cath Kidston finds...






D.I.Y Tile transfers.

Decoupage tile transfers...
These really do last for a long time..
As long as you varnish them...
glue, paper and varnish is all you need.
I just fancied a change...
I painted over my originals with a primer to start.


Some of the original prints I kept but I added a few new ones :) 
next is new plug socket covers...



Repurposed Singer Drawer.

One of my treadle tables I acquired was badly damaged.
Once I fixed as much as I could,  I was left with a spare drawer..
Ooh what to do with this lovely little thing..
Solidly built, chunky wood...


I ask myself what are my storage needs...
Tea and coffee holder for the Kitchen...
no, I have another repurposed console table drawer doing that.
Soaps for the bathroom....
no, another repurposed drawer from an old tool box doing that...
I decided on a key box..I am so sick of looking for lost keys.
